The other day I was invited to participate in a fun challenge for Kendra Thornton PR maeven and travel extroidanaire. Kendra is traveling to Disney’s Animal Kingdom in Orlando using Gogobot for her travel plans. She mentioned that for the many attractions she would be attending with her family that she wanted to be comfortable, yet glamorous. Using my wardrobe styling knowledge I would put Kendra into the Light Spring category, a lighter color palette of pale pinks, nudes, teals, creams and corals with a splash of color. After doing a basic Google search I did see that she has been photographed in the opposite, blacks, royal blues, and deep purples. The great thing about fashion is we can usually wear what we please, however when looking to be the best version of ourselves starting with the right colors will naturally give us that little pop! While Kendra looks great in all of the colors listed above I went with a lighter color palette with the occasional dark color tossed in here and there.
Kendra mentioned three specific activities that she will be attending. The Wildlife Express Train, Kilimanjaro Safari and a meet and greet with Goofy! How exciting! I also included a few more styles that she can add to her lookbook for other outings that she didn’t mention but I just assumed dinner and a night even would be included.
“We’re headed to Orlando to experience Disney’s Animal Kingdom park. There are a ton of rides, but I think my kids are most looking forward to the Wildlife Express Train. You can ride on a locomotive that goes through areas of Harambe, which is set in a scenario unique to Africa while also heading out to Rafiki’s Planet Watch. My kids love The Lion King, so I’m certain they’re going to love this ride.”
“I am actually looking forward to going on the Kilimanjaro Safari. This attraction actually seats you on an open-air safari vehicle that heads into the African outback. There are 34 different species of African wildlife at the park, which actually roam free in parts of the park. Last but not least, we’re definitely going to check out the Goofy & Pluto in DinoLand meet and greet. Kids get to dig around with their favorite Disney characters in hopes of finding treasures. I know my kids will love this because they love to cause a mess sometimes.”

My fashion inspiration for Kendra’s Dressy Dinner wear was from none other than the lovely Carly Cristman. I decided that Kendra would benefit most from a casual glamour dress code for this trip. When traveling with little ones it’s hard to get dolled up everyday so I decided that a good foundation of Kendra’s to pack list should be basics and from there glam it up with accessories.
